It's all back on! Clevedon Hall Wedding Show.

Our first show in almost two years! We were very excited to exhibit again at one of our favourite venues – Clevedon Hall. It was a strange feeling setting up for the show – it has been so long due to covid – and the adrenaline was flowing as we could see a line of people already queuing up waiting for the show to commence.


We were show-casing our sister brand The Alternative Guest Book in our usual room of The Conrad in the bay window, a view of which we have recently added to our portfolio of Clevedon Hall sketches (we will come on to this in a bit). We were there with The Icing Centre – the cakes looked amazing, check them out on www.icingcentre.co.uk, such a talent and also Triggols Cars – if you have seen Downton Abbey or Peaky Blinders you may well have seen one of their amazing cars (.www.vintagewedding-cars.co.uk).



If you haven’t seen or heard us before then The Alternative Guest Book is where we take all the messages from your wedding guests – whether it’s a piece of advice, an amusing memory, a funny anecdote or how they simply loved sharing your special day – and we create a stunning piece of artwork that can proudly display in your home. Unlike a traditional guest book this can always be on display, and always bring back those fond memories of your wedding day.


It was great to see regular exhibitors that we haven’t seen for a long time and also hear that like us, after a period of being very quiet while restrictions were still in grip, things were now busier than ever with record bookings.


It was equally lovely to talk to couples planning their wedding. Lots of excitement in the room! Everyone we spoke to was so complimentary about our frames – some fell in love with the frames we create that use the guest’s own hand-written messages while others loved the neatness of those frames we create by re-typing each individual message and then displaying in various fonts/sizes.

We have just completed our latest sketch of Clevedon Hall using the view as your approach coming up the drive to the entrance. We love the deer at the front and we hope you like the sketch too.
